Vinegar to the Rescue for Your Pet

By Vicki McClure Davidson


Vinegar is so inexpensive and versatile. There are so many ways you can use it with your pets—whether they're horses, dogs, or cats—to effectively save some money and make them healthier and more comfortable.

When using vinegar as a homemade remedy for the first time with your pet, follow the directions carefully. Watch your pet to be sure there is no adverse reaction. Vinegar is natural, has been in use for centuries, and there is usually not a reaction, but it's much better to err on the side of caution to confirm that your pet is not sensitive or allergic to it.
